Gamer With Stolen Credit Card Leads Cops To Parents' Pot

Illustration for article titled Gamer With Stolen Credit Card Leads Cops To Parents' Pot

A kid in suburban Chicago boosted a credit card and bought some games and virtual currency online. When the cops showed up to ask some questions, they found his folks, uh, "Victory Garden."

This news comes out of Buffalo Grove, which you might remember is where some kid called the cops after his parents took away his Xbox 360. Same suburb, different family this time. Trevor Miller, 17, allegedly used a credit card stolen from car, burglarized back in June, to buy some online games as well as "virtual gold coins." I guess that's better than the actual ones, which I always took as a synonym for Durex rubbers.

Anyhow, Johnny Law traced the purchases to Trev (may I call you Trev?) and showed up at his house to ask some questions. Inside, they spotted the stickiest of the icky, and more outside. Mom and Dad got jammed up for "unlawful production of marijuana," while Trev faces that count plus unlawful credit card use and computer fraud charges.

Lesson: You grow pot, you'd better be purer than Caesar's wife. And your kids, too.

Not a fan of pot smokers and I have held back quite a bit a snark I could throw into the comments. Needless to say, throughout my scholastic career which ended in my bachelor's degree, I have seen very few successful pot smokers in the fields of sciences and engineering.

One I knew of was a musician, another was an anti-social Mac user, and the last was a math professor who apologized for hitting a metal pipe during lecture, wore sandals in ankle deep snow, and loved to proclaim "Holy Buckets".

The allure of marijuana never called to me as it always seemed associated with those of the poor and or uneducated. Maybe it's vice versa, that the poor and uneducated are more drawn to illegal substances as a "cope" method, *shrug*. Regardless, there isn't a good reason to partake in drugs. Plus it cuts into game money.

And I gotsta have me some mo' gamin'! *scratches neck uncontrollably*
